Link to book 2:Europa
She is not zeus’s daughter, but is a king’s daughter.  They rode away into the sea. Europa and Cadmus are from modern day Lebanon, when 
zeus kidnaps her they end up in the island Crete. 
Thebes
Outline of book 3:
Cadmus Actaeon Semele Tiresias  Echo and Narcissus Pentheus and Bacchus Cadmus 1. Europa’s brother, she is the favorite child. 
2. Unable to find her, cannot go back home. He consults Apollo about where he should go.
3. Finds the site where they are supposed to build a city, but they are killed by a serpent. 
Cadmus kills serpent and the teeth are used to grows new men to populate city. Apollo: God of prophecy 1. Delphi a. Most important oracular shrine.  2. Oracles and colonization a. Before new city was found you would go to delphi and ask apollo where they  should go next. 3. Answers are never straightforward a. You never get a right answer, never clear what you should do. Allows oracle to  always be right. Cadmus’ Oracle Boetia (page 57) Asks apollo what to do and he says to follow a cow. Cow lying down in Boetia 
and that is where they decide to build the city.
Cadmus finds men killed by serpent who belongs to Mars. Cadmus, “his courage 
being his armor” sticks it with his speer. He kills the snake and a successful 
dragon slayer. Common motif 
Strange crop­ Minerva shows up and says to plant the teeth. So he does so, 
growing future people. They begin to fight each other and kill each other. Few of 
them become Cadmus’s warriors. 
Cadmus marries Harmonia. SItting in thebes and then stuff begins to fall apart on
him. 
background image (teeth to men) Actaeon Sees Diana bathing after hunting with friends. Diana takes her virginity very seriously. She reaches for her arrows and splashes water 
at him. He then turns into a stag
Hunted by his hunting dogs and torn apart Is this a fair punishment?  He happens to be somewhere at the wrong time. Was what Diana did 
reasonable? 
Comparison to the transformation of Io.  Similar features, Io tries to reach out to Argus, is frightened by her reflection, tries
to speak. She remains a human conscience. 
With Actaeon, he is upset by reflection, tries to speaks, tries to reach out to his 
friends. Also remains a human conscience. How much humanity is retained? 
Both of them retain human conscience’s.
(Man to Stag) Semele Theban woman One of Jupiter’s mortal lovers, but worshipped as Goddess in thebes Carries his child which upsets Juno Asks to see jove but is incinerated by Juno Child is saved Junos trick­ She acts surprised and upset that he impregnates a mortal woman. Juno 
shows up to her house to drink and hang out. Semele tells her she is carrying Jove’s 
child, and juno convinces semele to ask zeus to make love to her. Jupiter promises and 
swears by sticks before knowing the promise. She asks to prove his divinity but cannot 
see him in his divine form and is killed, child is saved but zeus sews the son into his 
thigh, and is born, Bacchus.
Bacchus (Dionysus) Twice­delivered, mortal that becomes one of the olympians. God of wine Unusual rituals Fertility  Agriculture Wears a flower crown, shown with women in altered state, and is also a god of 
theatre. 
Tiresias Juno and Jupiter having dispute about which gender enjoys sex more.  Tiresias can result it because they have been a men and women. Hits a snake and turns to a women, and then does it again turning into a man again. Jupiter is right, women enjoys sex more. Juno decides to blind him.
